Hello everyone! I can’t believe it’s Sunday already, this week has just flown by! Fingers crossed the next few weeks pass quickly too so we can get back to some F1. However just because it’s the off season doesn’t mean we don’t have any news or links for you all to enjoy on this beautiful day.

F1 may be on it’s holidays but that doesn’t mean other motorsports are, and I just wanted to quickly mention Justin Wilson. I’m not really an Indy Car fan, but as a motorsport fan hearing about nasty crashes is never nice and yesterday Justin had a particularly bad one. He sustained a fractured vertebra – ouch! I hope he gets better soon!

While we’re away from the subject of Formula 1, I also wanted to point out Leigh’s post on Lara Platman, a very very talented motorsport photographer. You may have been following her on twitter recently, or seen her post on Sidepodcast but you’ll probably have been aware that she was trying desperately to get to the Spa race last week. Well, in case you haven’t heard, she did, and goodness me did she get some good shots!! Take a look at Leigh’s post featuring Lara’s work and see for yourself.

Moving quickly onto a little bit of Formula 1 news then. It’s around that time of year when teams start to announce they’ll soon be switching focus onto next years car. Well Ferrari have said it’ll be there time come September, lets hope they get the major upgrades they need to give Red Bull some more competition. Mclaren are branching out, hear more information over at f1minute.com or using the wonderful app… you’ve got the app, right? Speaking of F1minute you’ve heard the wonderful news haven’t you? happy 900 episodes Christine and F1 minute fans!

I think that’s enough of the serious stuff for today, lets move on to some fun links for you all to make you smile;

• I’ve always said that you can make art from anything, a banana, ants, or even your old and used CDs. I wonder what kind of art you can create from unused things around your house?

• I think this is possibly the best way to exit an underground station. As someone who hates undergrounds I think I’d bare a short journey just to try this out!

• Oh, and something for Christine and all those technology and Panda lovers out there.

I’m going to leave it at that for today, I hope you all have fantastic days doing whatever you have planned. Do stop by the comments if you get time and have a chat, we’re always open!

    I am missing some Flesh Coloured Model paint. As these bottle were already used It was argeed with the ex-medical staff that a small ration of yellow pills should be hidden from the hypercondriac engineer.

    I now suspect that the panda has taken them (These are two sets of Panda claw prints entering and leaving the area) and wish to inform you about this before Christine or Steven finds out since, as ships' Entertainment Officer, we can both profit from charging for coverage of Steven chasing down the said Panda..... :P

    Good morning from Boston. I'd say it was Sebastien Bourdais, although given that was 2009, that seems pretty recent to be called history, imho. How about something really tough, such as: Who was the first (and maybe only) F1 driver to win a race in the now-defunct International Race of Champions?

    Having read the book! I can tell you that you are correct about Bourdais

  • Alex Andronov07/08/2011 at 11:43

    I think History is good because it could be recent History or Ancient History and adds to the complication for guessing.

    I think "Holocene" is a noun equivalent to "recency." I've a feeling no one will find that palatable, though! :-)

  • Alex Andronov07/08/2011 at 11:53

    I think "Holocene" is a noun equivalent to "recency." I've a feeling no one will find that palatable, though! :-)

    The Holocene does cover the most recent 10,000 years though so while accurate does kind of give quite a broad and geological spin on "recent"

    The Holocene does cover the most recent 10,000 years though so while accurate does kind of give quite a broad and geological spin on "recent"

    Maybe there just isn't a single word for it then. I guess if the goal is to make the quiz not-too-easy, undistinguished "history" has to do.

  • Journeyer07/08/2011 at 12:07

    It's not really a quiz. We're just trialling the concept to see if it generates conversation. So far it has, just not the conversations we were expecting :)

    Got it. By the way, the answer to my "ancient history" question is, Emerson Fittipaldi, 1975. By that time it was clear that, having switched from Porsche 911s to Chevrolet Camaros, the series was rigged to favor Americans and was ignored by topline F1 drivers thereafter.

    To think the early NASA astronauts were refered to as the spam in the can. Who wants to be the meat in the pie?

    I am very pleased to see Jordan posted his idea for the sidepodTrek spaceship. I think this will encourage others who thought they may not be artistic enough to post their ideas. I want to see the bit of the spaceship on the other end of the string.

    To think the early NASA astronauts were refered to as the spam in the can. Who wants to be the meat in the pie?

    In case people are wondering what Steven is talking about....here is the original post again....

    Jordan F1 (The Trigger … 07/08/2011 at 03:48:34

    At the other end of the anti-gravity device (code name "black sting") is a ceiling fan.

    Well, I think I have a concept model of SidepodTrek's spaceship.....

    What doi you guys think ?

    Actually it has the potential to be good but they seem to mess it up all the time (ALMS races are usually good, I missed yesterday but the last two years it was better).

    For some reason this rule has been put in place, bear in mind t4 is a right-hander at the end of a long straight and the only real passing place:

    Tweets from @MoreFrontWing based on notes handed out from the drivers meeting:

    "Best passing zones are into turn 2 and turn 4. Use good judgment there and everywhere on the track. Once again, no defending."

    "Esp. going into 2 & 4, use braking cones on drivers' left to help frame pass. Between cones 4-3, be on outside half of track unless passing."

    "Once you go through the kink at 3, you can't stay on the right side of the track into turn 4 unless attempting a pass."

    "Difficult track for passing. Between turns 5 and 9, it's follow the car ahead. Keep passing lane open or event won't be entertaining."

    I have heard nothing official, but I think it's a much better solution, with one reservation. I like that it will not be back-to-back with Canada. I could see some leeching of ticket sales. I could see where US spectators would choose to attend 1 race and not come to Canada. As they are split, I can see people going to both.

    The one reservation I have is that Austin will be back-to-back with Brazil. that is a bit of a long haul in a short time.And for the last race of the year you want to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, with enough time to recover from any major failure.

    I have no intention of foregoing Montreal for Austin. But if Austin is in late Oct or Nov, count me in. One problem, Oct/Nov height of the football season

    I wouldn't see it as a problem. British Grand Prix is the height of the cricket season but that seems to be no problem...

    Conway in a Lotus/KV car?

    I thought he was Andretti?

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 19:53

    I thought he was Andretti?

    Me too but that looked like a KV car

  • Jordan F107/08/2011 at 19:55

    Boy, I was not able to find this race on TV here in Tundraland. I hope this is not like F1 will be like next year...

    Some of these indycars have the most obscure sponsors. Never heard of Sprott, but they're leading

    Pit stops will break the monotony a bit. Not that I like the crash fests, but this is not that thrilling.

    Though I do like when we can hear an onboard and hear the cars get light over the hills. That's cool.

  • Rubbergoat07/08/2011 at 19:58

    Pirro is great at these things. Saw him at Autosport International and even McNish couldn't get a word in

    He's a lovely guy. People thought I knew him. He won the pro-am race too. Really ragging it in a BMW 2002!

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 19:59

    Maybe after the last race the drivers are on their best behaviour

    Though I do like when we can hear an onboard and hear the cars get light over the hills. That's cool.

    Anything that lets you see how the driver is working the car is good

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:00

    Yeah, that could be it.

    I have only seen him on a stage but he came across like he would just chat all day with anyone who was interested

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:01

    Dixon pits

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:03

    Rahal spins, has another terrible week.

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 20:03

    I prefer pit stops with one mechanic per corner

    Week ?!?!?! Rahal has a a horrible racing life, Kai.....

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:05

    Rahal spins

    and he sits all by his lonesome, desperately wanting someone to get over there to get him going again.

    And on replay he and Danica hit and that sent him off.

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:05

    Week ?!?!?! Rahal has a a horrible racing life, Kai.....

    Looks that way...

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 20:05

    I think Bobby Rahal must be thinking about a DNA check

    Rahal did a Piquet for Dario. Power to the back of the queue

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:07

    Briscoe and Power pit, Dario is directed to go past Dixon, having beaten him to the blend line.

    hehe

    He's on blacks, looks like.

  • Jordan F107/08/2011 at 20:09

    That seems so last few centuries to have a farm tractor out on the track....

    Conway's side pod has "Follow Andretti"

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 20:17

    I saw that. I guess sponsorship is hard to come by

  • Joe in Fla07/08/2011 at 20:18

    I saw that. I guess sponsorship is hard to come by

    I dare say that it means "Follow Andretti to NASCAR", there are rumors to that effect

    Well, when you can not find even get covered by a decent American TV channel, you are in trouble off the get go....

  • Jordan F107/08/2011 at 20:19

    Better following Andertti into NASCAR than into a wall.... :p

  • Pat W07/08/2011 at 20:27

    Just got home, is the race any good? I guess after 90 minutes it'll be too late to join so I'll get it another time.

    Evening. Just Got home from the classic car race. Took 350 pictures, met Emmanuelle Pirro and Prince Joachim of Denmark, saw numerous rare and classic cars and was spoilt with free food and beer. A great day out!

    Wow, nice result. :) I saw Pirro at Goodwood a year or two ago, wish I'd said hello and glad you got the chance.

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:27

    Did I hear Will Power's chief say that there's just too much traffic for him to make up spots?

    Isn't that what racing is? Passing people?

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 20:27

    Pretty dull. Very dull really

    yeah.

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 20:28

    I didn't hear that

    That's what I thought

  • Joe in Fla07/08/2011 at 20:29

    Isn't that what racing is? Passing people?

    I guess you have to be faster than the traffic

  • Jordan F107/08/2011 at 20:29

    I guess it can not be Toronto at every track.....

  • Pat W07/08/2011 at 20:29

    I wish I could say I was surprised.. I think it is called a Sports Car Course for a reason.

  • Steven Roy07/08/2011 at 20:29

    I don't get why Dixon is running so fast. He has the race won so why not take it a little easier?

  • Kai07/08/2011 at 20:29

    I guess you have to be faster than the traffic

    oh yes, that must be what's missing. :)

    It does look like the car is a handful from the on board cam (I say from my couch).

  • Jordan F107/08/2011 at 20:30

    I hate it that there is more "passing" in the commericals than the actual race... :P

    Darn Vigara-type commericals

    Does it do that if more than a few people are viewing or is Wordpress just struggling in general do you think?

    I think it must be Wordpress in general because it isn't usually site-specific in my experience.
